Venice

The most enjoyable thing about visiting Venice is exploring its alleys: and not for one day, but for two, three….
Whatever one does one can’t but feel moved when faced with the splendor of the San Marco Basin, or who could fail to admire  the mosaics of San Marco’s Basilica or to feel part of a Goldonianan scene strolling across the Rialto Bridge.

First
In the first itinery, naturally all of the most famous and unmissable monuments are included in case you are  in the city for only one day: The San Marco Basilica, the Campanile; the Palazzo Ducale.  In addition a final stop is made at a very evocative  and less touristy spot in the city: the island of San Giorgo, the Guidecca and the Zattere.  Suggestions are made as to where to take an aperitif , have a quick snack and we will indicate the restaurants, bacari (typical Venician bars) where you’ll have the chance to taste local specialities for reasonable prices.

Second
Possibly on the second day of your stay in Venice this second itinery follows on from having seen the unmissable sites of the most original square on the planet.
For your second day we propose a trip round the Rialto Market, to mix in with the Venicians who are doing their morning shopping, amongst the cries of the “fruttarioli” (Venician fruit vendors), the fishmongers, the boat owners on their boats  “Tope”; amidst the colours and smells of this very evocative place.
Then after having taken a look at the grand Church of Frari and the spectacular San Rocco School, completely covered in the works of Tintoretto, in the afternoon you can choose between the Accademy Art Gallery, where you can stroll amongst the great Venician painters of 1400 and 1800 or the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, temple of contemporary art.

The Third
This third itinary explores some of the hidden and less visited quarters of Venice.  Two of the lighter, more atmospheric and populated of Venice’s six districts:  Cannaregio and Castello:-
The Jewish Ghetto, and its many hidden synagogues.
Tintoretto’s church of the Madonna dell’Orto, one of the quietest and most gracefully romantic places in the city.
And then the small but incredible Church of Saint Maria Nova, with its multicoloured marbles and finally the imposing church of Saint Giovanni and Paolo.

HOBO B&B organizes visits with private guides.
